"Whom ye ignorantly worship"

To determine the "hidden influence" of a life, one need but acquaint himself with the law which that life honors. Whether the homage be conscious or unconscious, we aid in the fulfilment of that law whose sovereignty we recognize, and its moral quality is invariably disclosed in the effects of our thinking.

At an early date in their experience most Christian Scientists awaken to a realization of the fact that, however worthy their conscious motive or instinctive impulse, they have, in truth, been giving effectiveness to the most cruel and unjust mortal laws by consenting to and declaring their authority and power; and the exceeding sinfulness of sin is revealed to them, as never before, when they perceive that it is constantly converting human sympathy and would—be kindness into instruments of torture, and of death perchance, for those most tenderly loved.
